Serial number help on master built banjo

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm having trouble identifying the info on this banjo. I specifically am trying to find out when and where it was made. If anyone knows about this I would greatly appreciate their help. Thanks!

The Gibson factory in Kalamazoo closed in 1984. The handwritten numbers in the picture do not appear consistent with numbers that would have been placed on the instrument by Gibson. If you would email a full front view and full back view of the instrument to service@gibson.com, we would be glad to help you identify the instrument's model and age. Check the back of the peghead and the inside rim of the resonator. Those are the two places where you might find the serial number for this instrument.

This is the serial number for my newly purchased Gibson RB 150 banjo. If anyone can help me in this search I would be very grateful!

I’ve given you all I have! I don’t know what else to do.

You should contact Gibson customer service directly.  They do not necessarily constantly monitor this forum to answer questions.
